It’s already been a month since my trip to Portugal, and I’m finally sharing some outfits and pictures from this beautiful country. I got a little overwhelmed starting to write this post. There is so much I want to share but at the same time, I also just want to leave you to enjoy the pictures without too much noise.

If you follow me on Instagram or you read some of my posts leading up to this short vacation, you know that this was a last minute trip. I kind of love those the most. There isn’t too much planning, too much worrying, too much excitement that doesn’t let you sleep at night, and so on. I also have such a case of FOMO when I travel, that I end up exhausting myself and those with me, trying to make it to every stop on my to-visit list. I have been learning over the years to take it easy and not visit every single must-see location. Sometimes the beauty of travel is just being there and soaking up the energy of the city and the country.

This is exactly what I did this time around. I didn’t look up any sights ahead of time. I didn’t consult any traveler guide or blog. I just decided to go and see where the journey takes me. With that in mind, I also decided to pack really lightly and mix and match my pieces. I ended up bringing a pair of jeans that I travelled in, pair of Coulotte pants I am wearing in this post, three blouses, leather jacket, a dress and 4 pairs of shoes. This is where I over packed. Shoes are always my weak spot. I did wear them all, but I could have just as easily gone without my ankle strap stiletto sandals. The streets of Lisbon or other towns we visited, were not built with intention of wearing stilettos hehehe.
This is the outfit I wore first night in Lisbon. Colottes and top are both from Zara. I wore these block heel velvet sandals from Forever 21 because I realized very quickly that my stilettos would not cut it. And going out in flats has never been my thing. The sandals were sturdy enough but another little problem I encountered with those beautiful cobble streets were worn out, fairly slippery stones. But this is in no way a complaint! I would take those streets over regular asphalt any time. They are just beautiful.

Our apartment was in a perfect location, just north of Praça do Comércio and just east of the Castle. Our first night there, we walked around and enjoyed a beautiful almost summer like weather and atmosphere. Every corner of Lisbon is just gorgeous. We wanted to have dinner but wanted to avoid touristy places. We walked little further away from the crowds and found a small little joint with amazing food. I would love to share the name but I didn’t write it down anywhere and lost their business card. The food was amazing and I especially enjoyed the octopus salad. This was a start of a seven day binge eating spree for me and beginning of my newly found food FOMO.
More outfits and posts will follow soon.

Ciao!

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

Pants Zara, jacket Zara, sneakers Forever21, bag unknown (Winners), dress unknown (similar), ankle boots PrettyLittleThings

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…

Hello lovelies. I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Hopefully, those of you who are moms got to be pampered and spoiled by your kids and partners. I hope you also showed your love to your moms and thanked them for everything they have done for you. We should be doing it every day, but it’s really nice to have a day dedicated to these amazing women. I know how much my mother means to me and she certainly deserves every day to be dedicated just to her. I’m sure all of you feel the same way about your mothers too. Even the sun came out to shine and make Mother’s day even more special. I made sure to go bare legged to welcome the warmth and the sun. Today’s outfit is a cute spring look, easy to pull off. Black and white stripes always make a statement and a little pop of colour just makes the outfit complete. I spent the day out mostly and o…
